Clare Walker Consultancy delivers Freedom Programme facilitator training across the UK. And on occasion in partnership with Freedom Programme Charity here we asked delegates: What would you tell a friend or colleague about this training? This is what Newcastle had to say in June this year…

DO IT! Really informative, knowledgeable trainers, great ideas for facilitators!

I would definitely tell a friend/colleague about the training! It was very useful and interesting 3day training course, its given me such insight to the knowledge of victims of DV.

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

Yes definitely, facilitators of the training managed the course and content extremely well. I enjoyed the training considering the subject. Thank you

Residential Support Worker

 

Very interesting course with very useful info, it gives lots of opportunities to help you facilitate the training when you fly solo.

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

Helpful and informative, ill spread the word far and wide, best training to learn about the dominator tactics AND the victim. Feeling gutted ive not noted how society reinforces behaviour so strongly, but knowledge is power, ill go forth and rectify my ways!!

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

To give it a go and enjoy the learning experience, meeting new people, networking working opportunities and having some fun during the 3 days. Thank you ladies you have been fab!

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

Amazing, very insightful. Has given me a broader understanding and the confidence to facilitate course. Will support my family work in recognising the signs and warning behaviours.

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

I would tell them that it is really good, very knowledgeable instructions made the difficult subject easier to understand. Lots of group activities!

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

It is excellent- the facilitators are really great, funny yet really know their stuff. You have to be prepared for moments where it will hit you if you have been effected yourself. The course is so imformative, and you leave looking forward to delivering the programme yourself! Thank you.

I really enjoyed it, I learned a lot about tactics, beliefs and where they come from. Learning the ‘Rules’ was tough but insightful. I was able to get a better idea of how to facilitate the sessions I will run myself.

Family Worker

 

Really interesting and relevant to day-to-day work. Really important in terms of my work, and the people I work with. My role with women has been strengthened by what I have learned here this week, and I will continue my best to empower women at every given opportunity.

Forensic Outreach Service

 

Yes I would tell a friend and colleague that its absolutely brilliant training session, kept me engaged and looking forward to be able to start facilitating groups.

Social Worker

 

An insight into the world of the dominator, and as much as I hated learning so much about his ways, its definitely given me leverage against him! I will be able to teach the women what hes about to do before even he knows whats coming next, these women will have a leg up in getting away. I am excited to run my own FP and start supporting these women.

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

Training was enjoyable not what I was expecting. I would have liked to have told more people before I went on the training so they could have joined too, but I will make sure I pass the word around.

Family Support Outreach Worker

 

Very informative, full of effective ways to benefit facilitating when I start my group. I learned endless information that will help me support the women I work with.

Support Planner

 

Both facilitators help you to feel relaxed. The course is ran in a way to provide information but is in no way overbearing. Some of the course content is understandably tough to hear, but the group was supportive and friendly, which made it easier to digest.

Family Worker

 

Well structured, highly organised- interesting content, really enjoyed attending.

Community Nurse

 

Very worthwhile, gives you a lot to think about useful in delivering the programme in future.

Family Support Worker

 

Really good course, trainers are fantastic and very friendly with lots of knowledge. I would stay over in a hotel next time so I can get there early without the big commute I made. Really looking forward to delivering sessions!

Family Support Worker

 

The course was informative and interesting, brought to the forefront the seriousness of abuse. Will look forward to facilitating group work with the young people in setting I work in.

Child Care Officer

 

Very informative training which raises awareness of different aspects to DA. A good programme to deliver to women so they are able to recognise different types of abuse.

Family Worker

 

Extremely interesting, informative and practical for any field of work where you are in contact with victims of any sort DA.

Psychology Therapist

 

Really beneficial, would highly recommend this training, it will benefit anyone and everyone to attend.
